This is the ToE roleplay thread where players who have created their own pony character can come on in and adventure with others in the world of MLP. If you want to join the thread then please check out the OOC thread and submit a character sheet and await for approval.
All of the rules stated in the ToE core rule book is applied here with the exception of a few house rules. First off when a character gains a new level, they will upgrade a single trait of their choice, upgrade their Cutie Mark Skill, and upgrade/learn 3 new skills. Skills can not be upgraded more than once per level. Also a character will only ever have two quirks to their character and will not gain new quirks when raising their level.
The last thing to note is that if you have any questions or suggestions then you may contact me in the OOC thread or in the discord chat if you want to make a voice call. I hope you sign up and join us for these adventures
Signed, Critical Hit
OK, I'm gonna strike the giant ooze with lightning from my hammer. You toss the mushrooms.
Epic Mount carefully handed Critical the shrooms which he now held in his hoof like a mischievous child ready to throw stones at windows.
Crit: "I'm ready."
Epic went and took his hammer and pointed it at the giant ooze and focused on the head of it to send an electrobolt at his enemy.
Epic Body 1d12 = 3
VS Giant Ooze Body 1d10 = 7
The bolt of lightning hits the ooze but its slimy being just absorbs it like nothing else they seen before. Still though Critical throws the shrooms as hard as he could and it hit the ground to let out the loudest shriek they can make.
Shriek DC 12
Epic Mind 1d8 = 2
Crit Mind 1d20 = 15
After that the oozes could not handle the loud sound waves and their bodies twisted and contorted until they fell down as sickening puddles on the ground. Now was their chances to snatch the Crucible.

Epic HP 17
Crit HP 25
Epic Mount charges in quickly before the oozes had time to reform but would have to make a body check for running across a slimey floor with the acidic oozes spread about.
Slip DC 5
Epic Body 1d12 = 6>If Fail
Epic Mount Body 1d12 = 3
VS Ooze Acidity 1d6 = 6
Epic Mount was able to keep his balance on the dangerous terrain and he gets the heavy stone crucible on his back. He then makes it back to where Critical was. By now the Oozes had recovered and were now moving to the party to attack them but very slowly.Combat Encounter

They start to run through the winding tunnels with the oozes in tow. It shouldn't take long for them to get to the entrance area.
Crit: "By Celestia that pool will be too small for those things. We need to get out of here or fight them and destroy them!"
They get on out of the cave and by now the Oozes had given up the chase and had decided to retire back to their nesting ground to recuperate after such an assault. For now they were safe but they still had to get back to the Agarican village and speak with Sprygg on how to purify their Arcast and the location of the second Crucible.
Crit: "Huff... we're safe. Well that went a lot better than I expected."
The unicorn sits down on the dead grass as he tried to catch his breath. Epic could also feel his struggles mounting and his body began to feel tired. Even though they did have some rest at the Umber Inn, it was in some pretty dire circumstances. Perhaps they should rest up at the Agarican Village.Right now they are getting tired but there is no penalties for it yet.
That Ooze could still be a problem for the environment around here. It would be best if we find some good way to be rid of it.
If only we can teleport it upside during daylight.
Trying to teleport that from all the way down here will perhaps be too much for you.
If instead we can get the Agaricans to harness sunlight for themselves then they'd have a fighting chance.
But how do we get sunlight from down here? Maybe a series of mirrors?
Yes! Sooner we get these arcasts alight again, the sooner we can defeat Tirek.
I just hope we haven't wasted too much time already for him to make his move.
Critical just pokes at him until he wakes up.
Sprygg: "Eh what!? Oh its you three again, I see you were successful in bringing back our Crucible. How was your journey into the Ooze Nest, you seem to be tired so I imagine it was not without struggle."
Sprygg: "I see."
Crit: "We need to get this Arcast Purified but we are not so sure on how to do that."
Sprygg: "The Festival of Lights, look at how dark and red it is. I shall help you in order to save Umberfoal. What you will have to do is take it to the hall of Rituals, a temple set off in the distance that is home to the SporeDust Butterfly. There you will set the Crucible onto a pedestal and focus your minds onto the arcast you wish to purify. To do this you all must concentrate and recite these lines...Safe and sound a home will stay. If kept in peace and love by day.
Spygg: "Sun Crystals? What do you mean?"
The party had to explain to Sprygg their idea.
Sprygg: "That does sound like a good idea though we do have to give the Oozes some space with the circle of life and all. Anyways I suggest you three head on out as soon as possible though you are free to rest here in my home if you feel the need to. I'll also prepare a meal for you, I hope you like moss soup."
Sprygg: "That would be nice and all, perhaps you can show the folk around a thing or two with your punches and magics."
Crit: "Could take some time but I can go for some R&R here if you want."
This will likely take the rest of the day which was fleeting as it is. Still though they had plenty of time to save Umberfoal if they decide to stay for the rest of the evening.

Sprygg: "That sounds wonderful seeing that it has been ages since we seen ponies, in fact a lot of our youngin's don't even know what ponies are like so they would be happy to meet you. I'll go ahead and set up a small feast to hold in your party's honor while you three head on inside my home and wash up after that dangerous quest."
Crit: "A well welcome feast with food and drink, sounds good to me!"

Critical, this is probably a bad time to mention I don't like eating mushrooms. You don't nthink they actually serve mushrooms do they? Or will they be offended if we pick 'em off our pizza?
Crit: "They got... moss and stuff. Anyways just drink yourself into a stupor and all food will taste like daisies or something."
They head on inside Sprygg's home and take turns taking baths and laundering their well worn clothes. This takes about 2 hours until they were finally done and just chilling on a wooden sofa in the living room. The party was now much cleaner than they had been after going several weeks without a bath, dangerous adventures sure do take up high priority.

Critical was flopped across the couch as Epic entered the room, Crit was well clean and his mane was well washed and less of a mess than the usual. The same can be said for Epic.
Crit: "Well I'm sure they are waiting for us now. The feast will be out in the center part of the village just outside. From what I seen out of the window they got a big table out with our seats reserved and be happy, they got a variety of foods for us."
They headed on out and took their seats at the table near Sprygg at the head. All of the Agaricans seemed pleased and curious at their sight. To them it was these strange aliens who can now save their village from outside threat.
Before they could eat though they were quickly swarmed by three foal sized Agaricans who wanted to reach up and touch them as they muttered their Agarian Language.
Sprygg: "Ha ha, our children are pretty curious aren't they? They want to learn more about you three and who you are."
Sprygg: "They're asking for your names and what sort of things that you like to do. Things like what you like to eat, what games you like to play that kind of stuff. Heh it seems they think of you as children or at least interested in children's games."
Critical wasn't having too much fun as the tots tugged on his clothing and climbing up on him to reach his horn.
Crit: "Ack they sure are the adventurous type aren't they? I never would've guessed that I have mushrooms trying to scale me like a mountain."
So not much different from what the pony foals ask me at home.>To the mushroom children.
I am Epic Mount, me and my friends, we're adventurers.>To Crit
Perhaps they'll be the future defenders of this place.
Crit: "With how they act I don't doubt it."
He manages to get them off safely and the kids awaited for more information.
Crit: "I am called Critical Hit. I... used to be really good at gambling such as tossing dice or playing cards. I'm from a small town outside of Baltimare and I've been questing with my friends Epic Mount and Summer Rye since last year."
The children seemed excited at their answers and now wanted a story from them.

Crit: "So you mean when we fended off a mob of Diamond Dogs from the Ponyville museum? That sounds like they would have fun with that! I remember how we just met up at the Ponyville Statue and shortly after we heard cries of help coming from the distance."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLMV9B3vq1A>Time for me to go now.

>>12869>Tells the young funglings why they're here.
We've come all the way from Umberfoal because giant spiders have taken over the city.
While we have come for your magic light bowl thingy and braved the cave where the ooze has stolen them, we got the magic bowl thing back but the ooze remain. However if we get the magic bowl thingy charged with some sort of sacred light ritual and have the Festival of Lights happen then the spiders will go away I think. Then we can encourage relations between Umberfoal and your mushroom kind so that the duskloaks can provide you the means to be rid of the ooze.
Also I found this cape that belonged to Sir Squire himself. Critical also found a valueble thing from a magic pony who I can't pronounce.
